From a buyer's perspective, I think Toyota has a solid stragety for maximizing customer acceptance for electric vehicles.  By making their electic vehicle features as similar to an existing RAV-4 as possible (such as including a powerful air conditioner), customers will have less of a technology paradigm shift when purchasing an electric vehicle (which will make them feel more comfortable with their purchase and help increase electric vehicle sales).

I could see it as a second car, but there are too many limiting factors for the vehicle to be your only car.  With such high pricetags, it's difficult to see a how you would spend that much on a second car.
